Things I liked:I purchased this as a starter for my 9-year old son to learn shooting fundamentals. He enjoys the rifle and hit a can at approximately 10 yards on his first shot. The rifle is a bit heavy for him (he uses something as a rest each shot), but he will grow into it. It is accurate, has a safety that engages when the rifle is cocked, and the two stage trigger works well for the price. My son can cock the rifle with considerable effort and wants me to do it after he does it a couple times. It is easy for an adult.
Things I would have changed:The open sights are not very functional. To make them nominally usable you must either shim up the front sight or remove the elevation blade of the rear sight. I put a plastic shim under the front sight and it is barely workable looking through the rear sight. This is a design flaw, in my opinion, and should be corrected on an otherwise fine rifle. The rifle had a significant amount of oil/gunk in it and after considerable cleaning and around 200 pellets it was still dieseling some. At 250 pellets it finally seems to have subsided.
What others should know:It is accurate with the open sights. My son can hit cans anywhere between 10-20 yards after a couple weeks and I can hit cans up to about 30 yards with some regularity. Given this limitation and the flaw in the design of the open sights, I do plan to purchase a scope for the rifle soon.
Things I liked:The gun was solid feeling and easy to cock and the trigger was great.
Things I would have changed:For what's it's made for, it's a great gun. If you are looking for something that will knock down cans this isn't the gun for you. It puts holes in paper and that's about it. Not much power and certainly not as powerful as the specs say, or perhaps I just got a gun with no zip in it.
What others should know:Pyramyd does what they say. I returned the gun after shooting a few pellets through it and realized it wasn't for me. They fully refunded the price less shipping charges, which seemed fair to me. Replaced it with a RWS 34 and that's a real pellet gun.
Things I liked:I like everything about this gun.
Things I would have changed:I would like a slightly larger diameter in the pellet seat area.
What others should know:excellent go for it.
